Joni Mitchell (Roberta Joan Anderson) 1945– 
Canadian singer and songwriter 

  1. They paved paradise
    And put up a parking lot,
    With a pink hotel,
    A boutique, and a swinging hot spot.
    ‘Big Yellow Taxi’ (1970 song)
  2. I've looked at life from both sides now,
    From win and lose and still somehow
    It's life's illusions I recall;
    I really don't know life at all.
    ‘Both Sides Now’ (1967 song)
  3. We are stardust,
    We are golden,
    And we got to get ourselves
    Back to the garden.
    ‘Woodstock’ (1969 song)
